Plush did my bridal hair and makeup and my 13 year old daughters for my wedding on May 22, 2017. The ladies were very professional and did an excellent job. All they had to do was glance at the pictures we had of what we wanted and they matched it perfectly. Definitely recommend!

Phoebe is just incredible! She is so talented and made all my bridesmaids look & feel beautiful! I loved the way she accentuated all the girls' natural beauty, making them look like themselves instead of overly made up. I cannot recommend her enough. She is so kind and was right on time with all her supplies ready to go. So many people asked for her business card before she left! Thank you Phoebe!!! You helped make my big day go so smoothly!

Working with Jacqueline was a delight from beginning to end. She was on time and ready to work and didn't let the chaos and stress surrounding her, affect her composure or smile. She was a breath of fresh air. The makeup was beautiful, my husband loved it! The eyelash inserts last a really long time and she also leaves you with the shade of lipstick she uses for re-application during the event which really came in handy! Overall, I am extremely happy with her services, products and personality. Thanks for everything Jacqueline!

I don't even know where to begin, if I could give Sarah 100+ stars I would! She was amazing and so professional. She came to my rescue three weeks before my wedding after the girl I hired totally put me on the back burner. Sarah was there for me and made me her number one priority. Not only did she come to my rescue, she also accommodated my party of 10, yes 10. She made sure she had two other makeup/stylists to get the job done. They were all equally as amazing! She made me her number one priority, came to my house for a free makeup/hair trial that was absolutely gorgeous. She kept in contact, gave me options and was very organized prior to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, 8/20/2016, she was early, she and the other girls took such good care of my wedding party. The stylists fit right in, personable and had a great time while doing a great job. Everyone was so beautiful, I felt glamorous on my wedding day. She made everything perfect! Not only is Sarah an amazing makeup artist and stylist, she has a heart of gold and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to feel/look amazing on their wedding day!

Unprofessional. Unreliable. Rude. Disappointing to have scheduled appointment on site showing the date and time being available. After requesting confirmation from hairdresser had to wait 2 to 3 days to finally hear back saying that she is in San Diego unable to make the appointment. Her site says she's located in Carlsbad...Don't waste your time with these sites, the last "make up artist" I hired, showed up 1 hour late and seemed hung over:( Better to simply go to a professional salon. You never know whose going to show up at your door step!

My experience with Lizbeth was excellent. She did an excellent job on my make up for my wedding. She set me up with a hairstylist that also did an amazing job on my hair for my wedding. I am very pleased with how it all turned out. They were very punctual and professional. Make sure you have cash on hand. She accepts cash only and that was something that I did not find out until the night before the wedding which through a wrench in my plans with needing to run a bank errand amongst my many wedding things to do in the day of. Thankfully one of my bridesmaids had some cash to lend me, however I was hoping I wouldn't need to throw anything on anyone else. It all eventually got squared away and Lizbeth was gracious with me. For any future events I'd definitely hire her again. Thank you Lizbeth for helping me feel like a queen on my special day.

Pageant girls look no further! I hired Christine to do my hair and makeup to compete in a recent pageant. Christine and her team transformed a plain Jane working mom into a glamorous beauty queen. I felt amazing! Christine made me look flawless. She gave me smoky eyes, airbrushed my foundation and paired the perfect red lipstick to complete the look. Christine stayed with me throughout the entire competition and went above and beyond her duties as a makeup artist. She helped me changed into my evening gown. She touched up my makeup and she cheered for me in the audience. In pageants, we need to look and feel our best when we compete. I truly believe that Christine gave me the added confidence that I needed to take home the crown. I will be forever thankful to Christine and her team for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming Mrs. Asia San Diego 2016.

Steph is amazing! She made me look so beautiful on my wedding day. She was very easy to work with and she really listened to me and what I wanted my bridal makeup and hair to look like. The look was executed perfectly! She and her assistant were able to get me and 6 girls hair and make up done in on time and on budget. All my girls looked so beautiful too! I would highly recommend Steph for any event!

Raquelin (spelling?) Was amazing! First off, she's extremely reasonable. 30$ for professional makeup advice/lesson and even a makeover! She was prompt, came super prepared, and was able quickly adapt to my constantly changing schedule. She has a true talent, she's incredibly friendly, and super professional! She'll even drive to you! Definitely hiring her for more lessons!!!

Julia did my makeup for my wedding and made me feel so beautiful on my special day. She took the time to make me feel comfortable during the trial run so I knew before my wedding day that my makeup was one thing I didn't have to worry about, and that was a big relief for me. I highly recommend Julia, she does amazing work and can make any woman's inner beauty shine through. Thank you Julia! Alison

I procrastinated with getting maternity photos taken, especially since I was not feeling attractive...but as my due date fast approached, I feared I would regret not taking photos. I scrambled not only to find a photographer, but also a dress, and almost forgot about having my make up done! Thuy from Fresh Face Era was so quick to respond and tend to my needs! I've seen Thuy's work through wedding photographers and instagram and was so happy that she was able to help me on short notice. She has a great eye for beauty and used her expertise to give me the natural make up look appropriate for a soon to be mom :). (but if I had a wedding or ball to go to, I would be more than happy for her to glam me up! I've seen her work and it's definitely glamorous!) The make up turned out beautifully on the photos. Thank you so much Thuy from Fresh Face Era for making me feel beautiful during times when a pregnant woman needed it =p.

Chrissy came to my hotel to do my hair and makeup for a special event. We had previously discussed what I needed, and she went to work right away. I am very happy with how it turned out. Definitely a night of pampering and fun!

We have used Kim and her makeup and her styling skills on many occasions for video production TV commercials. I have also referred Kim to my family and friends who may be looking for a makeup artist for their wedding. Kim will be on time, give you excellent service and give you what you want! If you want the best, no need to look further!

After having the same stylist for 13 years, I moved to San Diego and was in need of someone new. Ashley took time to understand my needs and was very open to my requests. At my appointment, she was on time and ready for me. My color and cut turned out beautiful, and I scheduled my next appointment with her.

Alla did my makeup on a couple of occasions. Once for my friends’ wedding and another a personal photo shoot. She was very friendly and made me look beautiful, I was getting compliments all over. She is also very gentle and soft to the touch, careful in her work and takes in count all your wishes. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who appreciates amazing skill combined with great personality.

I have hair that just doesn't want to grow. In the last year of Randy doing my hair, it has grown nearly 6 inches. I have taken his advice in how to manage it daily, and it has never looked and felt as luxurious as it does now. I get more compliments than ever before. I trust his expertise and will continue being Randys client forever. Having a hairdresser listen to what I want, and being able to fulfill on that is always my goal. He succeeds that, and exceeds my expectations!
